Those holier-than-thou members of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas, say they will picket the funeral of Elizabeth Edwards.
That's right, fellow Okies, the Westboro gang is not satisfied with picketing the funerals of soldiers who died defending the nation, now they are going after political wives.
This is nasty and hateful business, but it's the sort of things some Bible-thumping idiots like Fred Phelps do to get attention for their ultra-fundamentalist (read: nutty) causes.
The Westboro folks have a right to hold extreme opinions and to express them, but they should take their protests to an appropriate public location or forum. There are times and places for their brand of dissent. But the funerals of soldiers and political spouses are not the place for hate speech.
